From the most recent can release

Appearance - Pours opaque and dull orange in color with an off-white, near finger width head and several chunks of yeast accumulating at the bottom of the glass. The head shows fair retention before breaking down to a thin, broken layer and with a fair ring found around the edges. Some broken lines and small spotting make up the lacing.

Smell - The passionfruit stands out prominently, along with lesser orange, vanilla and pineapple.

Taste - Follows the nose. Tropical fruitiness (pineapple, mango, papaya) and citrus (orange, grapefruit) upfront with a touch of vanilla that emerges more as the flavor profile progresses. Tartness kicks in mid-taste along with a hint of peppery spice and some stronger grapefruit juiciness. The finish peaks with tart notes, along with a slightly bitter pithy edge and lingersweetness.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with light, tingly carbonation. Firm, silky texture with a pleasing, quenchable finish.

Overall - The sister beer of Johann Needs a Bigger Broat, but with the added tartness of the passionfruit. This works perfectly with the tropical and vanilla components. Man. Hard to say which one I like better, truth be told, but I think I have to give a slight nod to 'Broat' for it's balance.

This beer was disappointing. Tongue-lashing acidity from the start. Weak vanilla notes. Only slightly more palatable than Aslin's DDH Neutrino, which was terrible.

The beer pours a nice white and creamy head that dissipates fairly quickly. The beer itself is a cloudy orange with yellow notes around it.

The smell and taste are very good. The main notes that come out strongly are the passionfruit and the vanilla. The passionfruit gives a nice floral and sweet note while the vanilla gives it a bit of a sugary creaminess accent. The smell and taste also have a bit of pineapple to them. There is a slight tartiness to it, which is a good contrast to the vanilla.

The feel is pretty good. It's a heavy body but seems to have a lighter texture than expected. There is a slight acidic feel to it.

Overall, a really good DIPA and pretty fruity to boot. The vanilla is great since it adds quite a bit to the beer.

Pours dark orange with one one finger white head. Light lacing. Aroma mango, pineapple, passionfruit, slight pine and light vanilla. Taste follows the nose with a fruit tartness and creamy mouth feel. Really niceDIPA.

Most extreme fruit aroma I've probably ever smelled in a beer. Taste requires some adjustments from the normal Aslin DIPAs. Has a grapefruit pithy tartness/touch sourness to it. Very excellent all around though. Not really picking up the vanilla in aroma nor taste. Mouthfeel is pure creaminess and delightful.

Thick as hell. Smells and tastes of passion fruit. You don't feel the alcohol at all. The hops blend well with the fruit. Excellent beer.
